My story

In 2013 Hobo was found in a box at Vero High. He was adopted and spent 8 loved years in a family, until one day life brought him back to us after his owner passed away.

Having been the only animal in the home, Hobo never got to know how to be around other pets and now as a senior his anxiety around them creates too much angst for all parties involved to place him in a home with other pets.

Hobo is incredibly sweet with all people. He would do best with children over 8 years old. He is loyal and smart. He LOVES water, cuddling in blankets and car rides.

If you have a quiet family with a spot for a great only pet, please come meet this Hobo before he spends another year of his golden years in a shelter.

Hobo is 9 years old and has been waiting for a home for 400 days. Adopt or Foster!

Requirements: Martingale Collar; Children 12+All of our dogs and cats are spayed/neutered, up to date with age appropriate vaccinations, heart worm or feleuk/FIV tested, fecal tested, rabies and tag, and microchipped before being placed in your home. Our adoption fee helps cover this cost.

Additional adoption info

In completing this application, I hereby affirm that all information given is true and accurate to the best of my knowledge. I also acknowledge that should any of the information on this application prove false, or should I misrepresent myself in any way, my application will be denied. There is a one time, HOLD fee of $25.00 for ANY adoption. This includes sponsored animals.
We do verify current pets are up to date with vaccinations. If you rent, you have to have landlord approval. Please do not place the HOLD fee if you are unsure.
Our adoption fees vary from $150-$300 for dogs and $85-$100 for cats. Adoption fees for other types of animals vary. Our adoption fees help to cover our costs for spaying/neutering, the rabies vaccine and county tag, puppy/kitten vaccines, heartworm, leuk/aids, fecal testing, and microchipping. Our adoption fees in most cases do not even cover the basic veterinary costs,

Q. Exactly what vaccinations has my new pet received?
A. All dogs are vaccinated against Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parvovirus, Parainfluenza. Pets over 5 months old also receive their Rabies vaccine and county tag (dogs and cats). The Rabies vaccine is a Statewide requirement and you MUST register your new pet with your county. Please check the laws in your county regarding registration procedures and costs.

Q. Why does my new cat/dog have to be spayed/neutered?
A. Our goal at H.A.L.O. Rescue is to save as many lives as possible. Nearly 70,000 puppies are born in the United States every day. Only 25% of those puppies will find loving homes. Five million of them are euthanized in shelters every year. That’s one every 6.5 seconds. Decreasing the overpopulation of abandoned and abused animals is our highest priority. By spaying/neutering we are not only ensuring better health for your pet, we are also decreasing future accidental pregnancies, which causes overpopulation. Because of our strong belief that spaying and neutering decreases our pet overpopulation, we have teamed up with local veterinarians and offer low cost spay and neuter vouchers.
Come to HALO and pick up your voucher. It is affordable and for every pet fixed, you are doing your part in saving hundreds of lives.

More about this rescue

HALO Rescue is a no kill rescue and adoption center. We are Indian River County's only no kill shelter and yearly intake over 2000 dogs and cats.
HALO accepts these animals regardless of age, medical condition, or behavioral reasons as space permits. Once an animal enters the shelter we provide all emotional, medical, and behavioral needs before placing that pet in a forever family. All of our animals leave spayed/neutered, vaccinated, HW or Leuk/Aids tested, and microchipped.
We are the first shelter to begin a community cat diversion program where we expect to reduce the number of cats being euthanized in our county shelter by a targeted 900 cats/kittens within the next year.
HALO is a network partner with Best Friends and we are always seeking innovative fresh ideas for getting pets out of shelters, into homes, and off the euthanasia lists.
We do not receive government funding but rely solely on donations, fundraisers and grants to continue our lifesaving work.
